You notice the small picture to the left, which is from Amazon books. I received a notice that I might be able to have some of their ads at my page. I am considering the possibilities as long as I can still mention books of other places and sorts as the need arises. If you think of how many times I mention Heinrich Porths German books for searching of family in certain areas of Uelzen. Or the antique book of Heinrich Borstelman, you know I tend to do just that. And not to mention all German area locations in review such as Ostheide or Dahlenburg, as well as united states areas like the Iowa history books are mentioned over and over as sources.
Today this book Sherlock Holmes and the Titanic Tragedy: A Case to Remember (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) (Paperback) ~ William Seil (Author) not only represents the subject Amazon it also represents the author William SEIL. His book published by Breese books.
I suppose by now you have noticed I seem to have more than two and less than ten families of Seil. It's so true. I never knew there could be so many.
In today's case the subject matter is due to one association given to me by M&M about William or Bill Seil the author. He had told me that this member of the family or did he say he may be a member of the family, who wrote this book?? He also made it easier for me by saying the gentleman lived in Washington.
I did find a little information on him a few years ago and well I shall have to forgo that clipping, sorry. It really saddens me that as hard as I tried to search for anything about this author through google or even the book sales, I had failure to find any clippings or published stories, or anyone claiming him.
My only hope I believe is through the census, if I can only get his birth year. Perhaps I can find the publishing date and subtract twenty to twenty five years and maybe arrive at a possible time of birth. I thought this is the area. Issaquah, King washington.[ I also have an old clipping which mentions him with his father whose name I do not remember.]
today I read this

the Baskervilles, and author of "Sherlock
Holmes and the Titanic Tragedy". This
article is his adaptation of the 1990 tribute
he wrote for his good friend Will Crakes.
You can't blame me for hoping that just maybe one of you might know something about this author or his family. Or better yet maybe you have knowledge of how I can find out more information on this author. Maybe there is a reference book somewhere. Now wouldn't that be nice.
I am well aware that he might not fit into our families, and that's okay. Cause I have these lists of people who need to be permanentally checked off as not related and not tied into my research..
